GOKYO & KALAPATTHAR TREK 24NT/25DAYS
This trek retraces the route taken by the old mountaineering expeditions to Everest. We drive to the village of Jiri on the road which branches off to the east from the highway to Tibet. From Jiri, the trail heads east winding up and down forested slopes, pastures and villages inhabited by various ethnic groups. Entering the Dudh Koshi river valley, we turn north and follow the river upstream to Monjo and on to Namche Bazaar in the Sherpa heartland. We continue trekking sharing the trail with yak caravans passing Tyangboche monastery and on to Pheriche across alpine meadows above the tree line. We are in very high country now and the route continues along the Khumbu glacier to Gorakshep. The summit of Kalapatthar (5,545 m) is a steep ascent and provides the best vantage point to view Everest. The vista of the tallest mountain on earth from here is awe-inspiring. We walk back to Lukla and then fly to Kathmandu.
